Chalk Hill Clarendon Syrah 2018

Special Price $45.00 Regular Price $50.00
97 points from Halliday for this temperate climate Shiraz sourced from an exceptional vineyard in Clarendon. Clarendon is actually part of McLaren Vale and is a little higher above sea level and cooler than the McLaren average. The result is a longer ripening time and the ability to tease higher fruit intensity and purity at a slightly lower alcohol level. This brings balance; critical for enjoyable early drinking, and longevity to the wine. So whilst this is superb already it should still be drinking well in 2050 if stored well. Black cherries, white pepper, blue and black fruits, spice, licorice, and fine-grained tannins mark this as a wine of poise and class.

A family business for six generations, the Harvey clan have six vineyards spread across McLaren Vale going back to 1897. Chalk Hill wines are small batch, hand crafted wines of distinction, reflective of the unique growing qualities of the region. Chalk Hill also owns the most excellent Alpha Crucis brand making staggeringly good, super premium kit. For value though it’s hard to go past the Chalk Hill branded kit in the $20-30 price range. These wines regularly pick up golds, trophies and big points from wine scribes.
